You should find a black case with a clear siding or and front. Why else have everything black. Plus I don't see why have green PCB's with black covers is so bad. PP MGuire's picture looks good. Plus I understand its your wants, but nothing is ever perfect. Just saying. Also your compositors will not be black and you cannot paint them.

CM has the same problem, as their fans are **** and proprietary. The Bitfenix isn't a direct match, but 3 holes aligned and it doesn't wobble or make noise so I'm good. Just gotta be creative as it appears all 200mm fans are proprietary which is absolutely stupid. I figured wth, I paid 17 bucks for this damn fan, it's going to fit no matter what.

That's what I was trying to explain. The rig I made up is like 90% black, and tried explaining that you wont get everything 100% black unless you dig out the paint. Besides, the gold caps give it a real nice contrast without too much bling IMO.

Even though I think OP is gone, come on. This looks great. There are only 2 things I would change. Make the PCH heatsink passive and straight black, and move the 8 pin connector.

The one I linked in my first post is the Extreme 6 Z77, which is almost exactly like my own board I pictured.
